Hailey Baldwin Tweeted About Wanting to Date Shawn Mendes 5 Years Before Their Met Gala Debut
Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin are the latest stars causing a fan frenzy after making their couple debut on the Met Gala red carpet on Monday (May 7). But while their relationship is seemingly still very new, it seems Baldwin has had her heart set on Mendes since 2013.
"Hey Shawn Mendes, let's date so you can sing to me all day," Baldwin wrote in a since-deleted tweet to the pop star, as discovered by Pop Crave. The model added to the flirty move: "I'm joking but not really."
Though the evidence has been wiped from her Twitter, there is still a tweet on Mendes' page that hints he has also been a fan of Baldwin's long before they got together. About a month after Baldwin shouted him out, Mendes responded, "Just finding out now that @haileybaldwin tweeted at me !"

Nothing appeared to come of the cute tweets at the time, but Mendes and Baldwin have been sparking romance rumors since late last year after the two were spotted together at Kylie Jenner's Halloween party in October. Speculation continued when they were photographed together at a MTV EMAs afterparty a few weeks later, then showed some PDA in Mendes' hometown of Toronto in December.
Mendes and Baldwin have yet to actually confirm their relationship, but neither were shy to share pictures of their fun-filled Met Gala night together on Instagram. And judging by their tweets from five years ago, the shipping of Shawn and Hailey (Shailey?) has been a very long time coming.
